  • The Village of Harriman dedicated the playground behind the Village Hall as the Edward B. Shuart Jr. Memorial Playground last Saturday, June 17. Shuart, who died June 23, 2016, was a trustee for the Village of Harriman for 15 years. He also served as deputy mayor.

On Saturday, June 17, the Village of Harriman dedicated the playground at Village Hall in memory of Edward B. Shuart Jr.

I would like to thank everyone who attended the dedication ceremony. There were several elected officials, village employees, business owners, and residents.

I also want to thank the following who joined with my wife and I and generously contributed to the memorial:

• The Berkshire Bank;

• The Connolly Family;

• Allan and Marjorie Drian;

• Colleen Farrell;

• Harriman Auto;

• Harriman Engine Co. #1;

• Harriman Square Deli;

• Martin Brower Company;

• Orange & Rockland Utilities, Inc.;

• CV Shashikumar;

• The Estate of Joan M. Shuart;

• Sterling National Bank; and

• Wallkill Valley Federal Savings and Loan.

• Also, without the outstanding assistance of the Village Office Staff and the Village DPW, this dedication ceremony would not have been possible.

Again, my sincere thanks to all who attended and helped make the dedication ceremony to honor Ed possible.

Stephen Welle, Mayor

Village of Harriman
